  • 2 Tbsp. ready-to-spread vanilla frosting, tinted yellow
  • 3 small green gumdrops, divided
  • 1 piece black shoestring licorice
  • 2 ring-shaped chewy fruit snacks, halved


  • Split  1 of the cookies in half; cut each piece in half to form 2 "wings." Spread plain sides of wings with yellow frosting. Spread frosting on remaining whole cookie for the base. Insert wings, frosted sides up and rounded edges out, into frosting in base.
  • Trim  thin slice off wide ends of 2 of the gumdrops; press cut ends together for the "body." Trim thin slice from body with a sharp knife and another thin slice from narrow end of remaining gumdrop for the "head;" press into the body to secure.
  • Cut  licorice into 2 (2-inch) pieces for the "antennae." Make 2 holes in the head with toothpick; insert antennae into holes. Use additional frosting to secure wings to body. Decorate wings with thin gumdrop slices and fruit snacks as desired.
